Wednesday 15 SeptemberFriday 17 September

The 3rd edition of the Climate Chance Africa Summit will take place virtually from 15 to 17 September 2021. 3 days of sessions on key themes and sectors of climate action – register today! Join the largest community of non-state actors engaged in climate action in Africa …

The third Climate Chance Summit Africa 2021 will be held virtually:

  • From the 15th to 17th September

A full-day dedicated to the annual Conference of the Covenant of Mayors for Sub-Saharan Africa (CoM SSA) on September 15th.

The Climate Chance Africa 2021 Summit aims to bring together the largest community of non-state actors in Africa: local authorities, businesses, NGOs, trade unions, youth organisations, indigenous peoples, women’s organisations, scientists, and representatives of the agricultural community. These are the nine major groups recognised by the UNFCCC that are committed to the fight against climate change and their networks, in relation with national authorities.

This 3rd edition will be held virtually, as the current health context unfortunately does not allow for an event in Africa.

It will nevertheless be a strong moment for mobilising actors on the issues of sustainability and the fight against climate change ahead of the COP 26 to be held in Glasgow in November 2021, and knowing that the COP 27 of 2022 will be held on the African continent, in a country yet to be defined.
